Statesville, N.C., October 25, 2010—The new LSC (LightSource Compact) light tower model from Doosan provides portable power with class-leading durability and reliability to meet the rigorous standards of rental and construction markets. The LCS is for road and bridge construction, emergency and disaster relief, and general construction sites.

LSC: Compact Platform

• Compact platform for truckload maximization and cost-effective transportation,
• Optimizing number of units per truck,
• Eleven fully assembled units nested on a standard 48 foot flatbed,
• The LSC utilizes up to 20 percent less space compared to the industry average, while maintaining its wind stability, static roll threshold and 30-foot extension capabilities,
• Mast/outriggers stowed: 166 x 53 in.,
• Full operational deployment on a jobsite, and
• Mast/outriggers deployed:129 x 107 in.

LSC: Stability and Robustness

• Superior strength and robustness for towing and operation stability provided by the 7-gauge steel frame with integrated tow bar,
• Able to withstand 65-mph winds with 4-point outrigger and jack system fully deployed, and
• Durable polyethylene material fenders—virtually indestructible on a job site, dent and corrosion resistant.

LSC: Quality and Durability

• Fully galvanized steel tower and galvannealed undercoat sheet metal enclosure for rust resistance and enhanced corrosion protection,
• Curly cord protection within the steel shroud along the first section of the tower prevents pinch or puncture damage, and
• The telescoping tower can be rotated 360 degrees and locks into position for precise aiming of floodlights while enclosure/frame stays stationary.
